Sir Bruce Forsyth dies aged 89

Post by Thorin on Fri Aug 18, 2017 5:03 pm

Sir Bruce Forsyth, the veteran television star, has died at the age of 89.

In a statement, his manager Ian Wilson said: "It is with great sadness that the Forsyth family announce that Sir Bruce passed away this afternoon, peacefully at his home surrounded by his wife Wilnelia and all his children.

"A couple of weeks ago, a friend visited him and asked him what he had been doing these last eighteen months.

"With a twinkle in his eye, he responded "I've been very, very busy... being ill!" Unfortunately, not long after this, his health deteriorated and he contracted bronchial pneumonia.

"The family would like to express their thanks to the many people who have sent cards and letters to Bruce wishing him well over his long illness and know that they will share in part, the great, great loss they feel.

"There will be no further comment at the moment and it would be much appreciated if the privacy of Sir Bruce's family is respected at this most difficult time."

He'd been very ill for a while so this comes as no surprise.

Bye Brucie, been nice to see you, to see you nice

A great entertainer, a true professional, and a lovely old school gentleman!
